    That would be a shear then. A nibbler removes material via a punch and die and will leave punchings as opposed to a strip the width of the kerf.
    Each tool has its advantages. The nibbler will cut a tighter radius.

    Thanks Terry.
    I should have known that since I already have the Milwaukee 10 gauge nibbler.

    I am as bad as you are when it comes to a good deal on tools. I just cant pass them up sometimes. I will figure out what to do with them later.

    Yes. That’s the spirit. Much better than kicking yourself later if you DON’T buy it.

    Give your dog an extra Easter pat on the head for me.

    Edit. I was going to say “ give your dog an extra PAT” but that would have been confusing.....

    I used my Makita 12" this weekend for one of my projects (more than just a few test cuts). I'm pretty happy with that choice.

    You'll like it. Support both ends of your work and clamp it well.

    Understood!

    I think one advantage of a band saw that I'd really appreciate is it seems blades are available to cut both steel and aluminum. So, slower cut but no need to switch blades.

    Bandsaws are the best.
    12v battery, jumper cables, and a 6013.
    I only have a facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/pages/VPT/244788508917829

    Just got it today. And forgot to order a steel cut blade for it.
    I'll try it out over the few days I'm sure.
